I have a new laptop (HP Pavilion x360). When my mouse crosses the screen on Firefox it enlarges the scree between 120% and 300%. How do I stop this? I suspect it has something to do with the tablet aspects of the laptop and it is seeing it as a swipe, but how do I turn it off?

When i download a pdf document from a website there used to be an option to open (in Foxit) or download. I suspect that the Win10 May '19 update may have changed this, because all pdf files have to be downloaded. Is this something to do with Firefox, Foxit or Windows? I have looked at the article on the built-in Firefox pdf reader, but cab find nothing on my screen to operate this?

Firefox Sync password discrepancy between macOS and Windows?

Hi,

I'm using Firefox on a couple of Macs and Windows 10 machines for quite some time now. And I keep tabs and bookmarks in sync with Firefox Sync. Has been working great for quite some time.

Since somewhere last week, it started giving me headaches. It started with requiring me to log into sync again on one of the machines (can't quite remember wether it was Win10 or Mac). My password (complex 35 characters, managed by LastPass password manager) did not work. Que? OK, so I reset the password with a recovery key (2FA enabled) and was able to log in again.

Then another machine gave me exactly the same: log in again, password wrong, only way in was to reset password, etc.

It seems I can get either all macOS Firefoxes to sync -or- the Win10 Firefoxes to sync, but not both. I tried completely starting over with sync (deleting my account, setting it up from scratch). But still the same problem...

I'm at my wits end with this... Anyone else having this problem? Was not able to find a reference on google or the support forums ;-(.

I guess it started with Firefox 67.0 (which has an update as I check just now).

Any hints or help most welcome :-D

Best regards, Donald

Work profile and home profile, each on three different systems -- 1 Mac, 2 Windows. I'd like each profile on each system to be sync'ed to the same profile on the other systems. Do I need one account or two?

P.S. I am contemplating moving from Chrome where I have two "persons" ("people"), which requires two Google accounts.

P.P.S. I have read some about Containers, but don't understand how they might relate to this question. Feel free to ignore this comment if it's not apropos.
